Has the gay rights movement become more conservative than radical? Julie Bindel, the author of a new book that tracks the changes in the gay community in the last forty years and looks at what it means to be gay today, argues that the “gay rights movement has lost its teeth.”
In this episode, I speak with Bindel about the problems with the “born this way” mantra, political lesbianism, compulsory heterosexuality, misogyny in the gay community and the declining radicalism of the gay rights movement.
Bindel is a radical lesbian feminist, a journalist, a founder of Justice for Women and co-editor of “Gaze: A Modern Review.”
